Here’s our first trip to a Texas rodeo summed up via slideshow, which is embarrassingly short because my phone went dead halfway through the day. And after a 10 hour jaunt we didn’t even see the actual rodeo (yet) – yes, it was that big! We’re headed back next week to see more of the action.
Insider tips (if going once makes you an insider): I would say “don’t brave the crowds during Spring break” but since it’s too late for that my biggest piece of advice will be to pack your own water! Seriously, water was $3.50 a bottle or more so if you want to save a few bucks (or in our case, like $20) grab a case for $2.50 at HEB before you get there. Also, avoid the portapotties at all costs – we’re not usually wimpy about these kinds of things but by 10am they were already disgusting, and there are much better bathrooms inside the buildings. And I’d be remiss without a shout out to our pals at Lost & Found, who totally saved us from camping out at the Rodeo by finding our car keys, bag and cell phone within ten minutes of them falling off of our stroller – thank you!
